Warmer Pattern Will Give Way To Cooler Changes

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): The highest elevations will see lightning in the distance to the north tonight, but otherwise, the spurt of 70s today will be common through most of the work week!

LIGHTNING IN THE DISTANCE! Above 4,000 feet in the western Greenbrier Valley and Pocahontas County will see lightning in the far distance to the north tonight from developing storms in Pennsylvania that will dissipate by the time they reach the Maryland border. The reason—the sky is clear and the humidity is low, so there is no haze to block the view and not too much moonlight just yet.

SEVERE WEATHER AND FLOODING RISKS: We don’t see any flooding and severe weather risks this week.

TEMPERATURES: We are guaranteed to have above-average temperatures through Friday (yes, the front is delayed until next weekend), before a pattern change brings colder weather.

RAIN: Expect the best chance for a thunderstorm east of Route 19 on Monday evening, then a few showers Wednesday and then Saturday afternoon into Sunday.

SNOW: The risk is high for an inch of snow accumulation above 4,000 feet late Sunday, April 21.
